Tom Owens Caye was a magic location for a chilled week diving in Belize. Polly, Patty and the team were generous hosts. The food was delicious with the lionfish and banana pancakes particular highlights! Diving was excellent. Still feeling good about the lobster survey! (more)Karen Whitham
Raja Ampat diving project, Indonesia
From
£995
excluding flights
Memorable parts? I loved the balance of activities: snorkeling alongside whale sharks, whale watching, data logging, community projects, working alongside serious scientists and having a proper vacation all at the same time Tips? Do it. Get stuck in to all the different aspects of the vacation, and spend as long as you can! Local benefits? Yes, definitely. The project managers take this really seriously and are really actively involved in various community projects, both instigated... (more)Anna Bosatta
Whale Shark conservation in the Maldives
From
£1,570
excluding flights
Memorable parts? Swimming with the megafauna (whale sharks and manta) Tips? Practice snorkelling beforehand if you're not used to it, but if you are, then you'll be fine. If seasick in the slightest, bring the necessary medicine; you don't want to waste boat time being ill. If sensitive to the sun, be prepared to put on lots of sunscreen frequently, and take seriously covering up against the sun. Local benefits? I think the program does support the local island economy.... (more)Nuraini Arsad

The whole trip was simply amazing!...Firstly the camp is set in the most beautiful place, and on a good night the stars are unbelievable. I've never seen so many! Must have seen at least 5 shooting stars a night as well as the cosmos! (more)Daniel Williams

From
US $1,195

The best diving vacation I did so far and it will be hard to beat. I learned so much about fish identification and substrates and this makes diving much more enjoyable. (more)Ulrike Kachel
The entire trip was a blast! Multiple dives per day without another diver in sight, unspoiled beauty of the amazing reef, incredible food, etc. etc. Everything about this trip was memorable and exciting! (more)Eric Strobel

From

Memorable parts? Arrival at Koh Tao and finding the lovely coral sand beach behind the dive school at Chalok Ban Bay. Then, exploring the fascinating underwater environment. Tips?

There are interesting and knowledgeable people there, who are enthusiastic about sharing their knowledge. Enjoy the diving, safe in the knowledge that you are diving... (more)Stephen Orwin
Belize marine conservation internship
From
US $3,595
excluding flights
Memorable parts? 1. Snorkeling with the whale sharks. 2. Good diving instruction to next level of qualification. 3. Chance to do conservation surveys as something more than that which you usually do on a regular dive vacation. 4. chance to dive in Caribbean at dive sites that are not crowded, never were there other dive boats at the sites we dived, thus only 4 to 8 divers at the site from the boat. Tips? 1. To the extent your baggage allowance allows it, take items identified including... (more)Simon Timms
Whale study week in Newfoundland
From
CA $3,400
excluding flights
Memorable parts? Where to start? Could it be the close encounters with puffins? Or the white beaked dolphins playing with a humpback whale calf? The spotting of an Osprey nest on top of the telegraph pole? Moose spotting? Trying to find the lighthouse on Care Spear (fog!)Or the tour leader singing local balads whilst traveling to our next wildlife encounter? Or being 'screeched in' in St. John's memorial park? ...most memorable? ALL OF IT! Tips? Remember NewfoundLAND is vast! Do... (more)Helena Hodges
Turtle conservation volunteering in Thailand
From
£739
excluding flights
Memorable parts? Experiencing the local village with people who didn't speak any English. Contributing to a project bigger than ourselves by providing daily turtle activity observations. Nok's restaurant! Stopping by at the resorts in between the hard work. The scenery. Tips? 1. Stay in Thailand on the mainland before coming to Koh Phra Tong. The island is not representative of the rest of the mainland (much more expensive, much more basic accommodations) and will be a culture shock... (more)Svetlana Neveu
Reef conservation volunteering in Belize
From
£895
excluding flights
Memorable parts? Learning to hunt/catch lionfish. The 3 daily dives Tips? Bring your own equipment, since equipment at reefci isn't well-maintained. Here is what I wrote on another website: The equipment overall was a little tatty - not a big deal - except one mouthpiece on my regulator was broken, which I didn't discover until I was in the water, and a strap on the BCD was broken so that the tank was actually floating perpendicular to me during the dive. These issues were tended... (more)Barbara Mack
Thailand marine conservation and diving holiday
From
£1,255
excluding flights
Memorable parts? The diving on Sail Rock, probably one of the best dive sites in the Gulf of Thailand Tips? This is a small village with basic amenities so be prepared to take it easy and relax as there is a lot of down time where nothing is happening. If you get bored easily then make sure you have brought things to occupy your time or better still make an effort to get out and about the island. Local benefits? Not really to the extent that I would have liked, sure spending... (more)Stan Batchelor
Mozambique marine conservation project
From
£2,125
excluding flights
Memorable parts? The opportunity to see and feel a different culture. Launching the boat into and out of the water Tips? I was on doxycycline as malaria prophylactic and I had quite a few side effects and had to stop taking it at the time I was there I didn't see very many mosquitos and the dive shop is equipped with a nurse who can do a malaria test and they have the antibiotics if a person gets sick Local benefits? In some way, I picked up a lot of garbage along the beach... (more)Susanne de Montreuil
